Ho’oponopono: A Hawaiian Prayer      

I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.

Ho’oponopono is a wonderful healing prayer that shows us how we are all connected to one another.

It’s an ancient healing modality that shifts our vibration, healing our relationships – with ourselves, our bodies and relationships with other people (the living and the ones that passed on). When we are consistent with this practice, we then let go of the things that no longer serve us. This Hawaiian Technique that was founded by a doctor studying mental patients, Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len. He looked through the files of each patient at the mental hospital he worked at. While reviewing the records, he chanted a mantra over each individual file:  I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. Dr. Hew Len did this over and over for months. Shortly thereafter, previously shackled patients were allowed to walk freely. Other patients were taken off of their medications. Soon all of the patients were healed and released back in society. Why? What we think of as “out there” is actually in ourselves. Instead of trying to change all these patients, he changed how he perceived these patients or his interpretation of the patients within him. Everything is a reflection. He changed his judgements or beliefs of thinking these patients were “crazy” to no longer creating that experience, he then transform on the inside out. By healing ourselves on the inside we then transform whatever that pain is on the outside.

The shift in consciousness: We take our power back by changing on the inside which changes our outside circumstances. Shifting our awareness of our surroundings and the people in it. Forgiving is a choice in choosing to not feel those negative emotions anymore. Releasing that emotional burden that we carried for so long, no longer experiencing those incomplete patterns of the past.

This saying carries its own vibration. Existing in a higher state of consciousness. Feeling deeper love, joy, happiness, etc. and clearing out your energetic field of lower vibrations. This modality has been practiced for a long time, so that when people say this frequency, we pick up on the vibration of all those other people that have been healed using these four phrases. We then match the frequency of that healing. Many others have used this as a powerful tool which has increased its power in our collective consciousness. Picking up on this divine energy, that’s been practiced by the Hawaiian culture to heal family dynamics. Here is the truth behind these phrases.

I’m sorry. This is not a state of repentance, sadness or guilt but is a state of responsibility for not being self-aware. Taking ownership for anything from our own interpretations, judgements, labels and perceptions and not being self-aware of what is within us. We are responsible for everything we think and feel. We then let it be.

Please forgive me. Forgiveness is the key to all healing. Don’t worry about who you’re asking. Just ask! Ask to forgive your judgement.

Thank you. The vibration of gratitude is very powerful. Stating, thank you for clearing this programming within me. (Thoughts, emotions, memories, beliefs that lie beneath the surface and that is causing this physical or emotional pain.) All indicating that “it is done.” I appreciate the interpretation that I had. I now I realize that everything is perfect the way it is. It doesn’t matter who or what you’re thanking, but say “thank you” for anything you’ve learned.

I love you. Love is reality. Say it to your body, say it to the earth, say it to your God, Source, Universe! Say it to anyone else in the story that you created.

Start by taking a moment and choosing who or what you want to use this prayer for. Repeat these phrases over for 10 minutes or for the amount of time you’ve carved out for in your day for this meditation. I like to listen to this prayer when I go for a walk or while I drive in on my way to work. There is something very hypnotic about it. Take it from me, if you practice this prayer for as little as a month, you will see how your life will change. Your perceptions change and you heal and forgive the different aspects of your life.
